The Curtis Creek Manifesto

Cartoons rule as the densest form of information packing known to humans. This slim 48-page book of cartoons contains just about all you need to know about fly-fishing, and covers more material than most wordy 480-page books on the subject (of which there are many). First published in 1978, this funky manual is still the one that veteran fly-fishers hand out to newbies with the command: “Read this first.” It is not the last word, but everyone agrees it is where you start.
